Edward Quinn, James Joyce's Dublin, with Selected Writings from Joyce's Works, (Nice, 1974),
"O, how do you do, Mrs Breen?
No use complaining. How is Molly those times? Haven’t
seen her for ages.
In the pink, Mr Bloom said gaily, Milly has a position
down in Mullingar, you know.
Go away! Isn’t that grand for her?
Yes, in a photographer’s there. Getting on like a house on
fire. How are all your charges?
All on the baker’s list, Mrs Breen said. How many has
she? No other in sight.
Youre in black I see. You have no…
No, Mr Bloom said. I have just come from a funeral. Going
to crop up all day, I forsee. Who’s dead, when and what did he doe of? Turn up
like a bad penny."
Ulysses, Lestrygonians P.145
